Welcome To The Newly Redesigned Site – Stay Tuned For More Exciting News!

Newly Redesigned Addiction Treatment Site Pathways RecoveryAt Pathways Recovery, we are proud to announce the launch of our newly redesigned website. With our focus on providing high quality detox and outpatient addiction rehab treatment, we knew we needed a professional-looking, highly-functional website that provided up-to-date information and resources in an understandable and informative format. We believe that the new website has accomplished just that!

With informative content, an easy-to-navigate layout and the latest information on insurance and other important topics, our potential clients and their loved ones can find out what they need to know about addiction treatment at Pathways Recovery.

The website is organized by programs and detox services. There are also pages on nutrition and family education, as well as a blog that will include the latest information about addiction and recovery. The Admissions section provides valuable information such as cost, financing options, insurance information and more.

Pathways Recovery’s New Design And Logo

Along with the new website, Pathways Recovery also has a new look that includes an updated logo and design elements. The logo redesign represents an individual who has struggled with addiction now achieving new hope in recovery. New images of the facility have also been added to the website to give site visitors a visual perspective of the treatment offered at Pathways Recovery.

More Than Just An Updated Brand

While the new website and brand elements certainly improve the online presence of Pathways Recovery, they are also designed to provide quick, easy access to those who are facing the challenge of addiction. When confronted with such a seemingly insurmountable challenge, it only makes sense that the information provided should be given in a user-friendly, simple fashion.

What’s Next?

As we roll out this new website at the start of 2016, we are already looking at more exciting things to be launched this year. We encourage you to bookmark the Pathways Recovery site so that you can check back often as we launch new tools for helping those in need and their loved ones.

If you’re ready to overcome addiction or you know someone who is struggling with alcohol or drug abuse, we encourage you to check out our new site. There’s plenty of information about our facility and treatment options. Then, give us a call to speak to a caring and professional staff member.

SAMHSA Publishes Drug And Alcohol Treatment Program Completion Rates

Pathways-- SAMHSA Publishes Drug And Alcohol Treatment Program Completion Rates -- 08-23-16Drug And Alcohol Treatment Completion Rates

drug and alcohol treatment

SAMHSA Statistics

The most recent data available for completion rates at drug and alcohol treatment facilities shows some interesting results.  Assembled from 1.5 million discharges from facilities across 42 states, the report details overall completion rates as well as breaking the data down into a wide variety of criteria that can help to uncover more perspective on the experiences of people seeking drug and alcohol treatment in the United States.

Overall, the report found that the completion rate for people seeking drug and alcohol treatment was 47%.  Within this overall number, the data showed that completion rate varied widely depending upon factors such as substance of abuse and the type of service being offered by the drug and alcohol treatment facility.

Completion Rates for Addiction Treatment By Program

Pathways-- Detox Completion Stat -- 08-23-16The report shows that the completion rate for people seeking drug and alcohol treatment was highest for those discharged from residential treatment at 70% with completion rates at detoxification programs a close second at 67%.  For short term residential drug and alcohol treatment, the completion rate was 59%.  For longer term residential care the completion rate for people seeking drug and alcohol treatment declined to 44%.  With less structured outpatient drug and alcohol treatment the completion rate went even lower to 40%.  Completion rates for people seeking drug and alcohol treatment tended to be higher (66%) when alcohol was the primary cause for treatment, and when people were employed their completion rate at drug and alcohol treatment facilities tended to be higher.

The report is episodic based.  In other words if one person sought drug and alcohol treatment twice in the reported year their information would be treated as two separate discharges.  The report also gathered the reasons for people being discharged from drug and alcohol treatment other than completion.  After completion of the program, the next highest reason for people being discharged was voluntary separation.

SAMHSA's support of drug and alcohol treatment professionals continues to be an important factor in improving the success rates of programs across the county.

Certainly comprehensive with a wide range of criteria including length of stay, substance of abuse, and others, drug and alcohol treatment professionals should be able to use the data to adjust their own programs to ensure a higher completion rate for their patients.

Are You An Enabler? | A Simple Questionnaire

Pathways-- Are You An Enabler -- 08-23-16To understand if you might possibly be enabling someone's substance abuse and preventing them from seeking the addiction treatment they need, answer these questions with a "yes" or a "no":

Are You An Enabler? : A Simple Questionnaire

  1. Do you call in sick for your loved one because they were too hung over to go to work or school?
  2. Have you ever told a lie to someone to cover up for your loved one's substance abuse?
  3. Have you had to pay bills for your loved one that they were responsible for?
  4. Have you ever done someone else's work for them because they failed  to complete it as a result of their substance abuse?
  5. Have you ever paid legal fees for your loved one or bailed him or her out of jail?
  6. Do you avoid talking you your loved one about their substance abuse because you are afraid of how they will react?
  7. Have you threatened to leave your loved one because of their substance abuse and then did not follow through on it?

Yes or No Addiciton Enabling SurveyIf you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then it is quite possible you are enabling someone's substance abuse problem and standing in the way of them seeking the addiction treatment they need.  Addiction is a family disease and denial is a large part of it.  Denial of a substance abuse problem happens for both the addict and their loved ones when the issue is not confronted.

Enabling creates an environment in which an addict can comfortably continue to engage in negative and risky behavior without consequences.  "Helping" someone means we are doing something for someone who is incapable of doing it for themselves.  "Enabling" is doing something for someone when they should have done it for themselves.  This will prevent change and a desire to seek addiction treatment.

While enabling is a behavior that loved ones learn for their own emotional survival, it also prolongs the problem of substance abuse.  Don't be part of the problem, be part of the solution and help your loved one seek out the addiction treatment they need.
